In June 2005, The Fold ventured to New York City to begin recording their Tooth & Nail Records’ debut, “This Too Shall Pass” with famed producer, Steven Haigler (Brand New, The Pixies). The album commenced cross-country with the collaboration of protégé producer, Zach Hodges (Terminal, Dead Poetic) in Seattle. “Lyrically, it deals with what has been going on with me over the past few years,” Castady elaborates, “It’s hard to write that out at times, and that is why this music has been so therapeutic for me; It helps me get through these frustrations. The title of the album is one of hope,” he concludes.
Musically speaking, The Fold feel “a song is not a song unless it sounds good when it’s stripped down to its bare components.” That is why every song is recorded as a demo with just an acoustic guitar and vocals before any further sonic enhancements are ever considered. This ability – to separate the focal point from the spotlights that enhance it – is an important quality that keeps the band centered in every sense of the word. With such an auspicious start, The Fold are poised for greatness, standing behind 14 songs of something more than a marketing ploy, but actual inspiration and honesty from real life experiences. This group of early 20-somethings has nine years of experience backing their journey, and it’s all just begun.
